A full season of live concerts and touring is planned for Westrick Music Academy’s Princeton Girlchoir and Princeton Boychoir for the 2022-23 season.

The young singers in grades 3 through 12 from central New Jersey and Bucks County, Pa., worked hard, meeting and rehearsing weekly, according to a Westrick Music Academy press release.

It comes after two years of theaters and concert halls being closed around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic. And choir members are “thrilled” to bring the “gift of song” to local, national and international communities, according to the press release.
